Rick Folbaum, who has been with Fox News nearly from the start, is leaving the network and has been named an anchor at WFOR the CBS-owned station in Miami/Ft. Lauderdale.
Folbaum joined Fox News in 1996, left in 2006 to anchor at Fox-owned WNYW in New York, and returned to FNC in 2009 where he has been anchor of “America’s News Headquarters” on Saturdays.
A WFOR spokesperson tells TVSpy Folbaum will join the station in late August on a Monday-Friday schedule, but it’s not known which shows he’ll anchor. The station has seen two main anchors depart in the last six months: Shannon Hori left WFOR in May for WAVE in Louisville, and Antonio Mora departed in December. Last week, Mora was named a primetime anchor for the new Al Jazeera America.
Folbaum, a Syracuse University grad and father of five, will have his last day at Fox News Aug. 9.
